   April 4 - 2013  - A rather unique and intriguing visitor recently brought his stay in California to an end.

OR-7 wandered throughout northeastern California but spent most of his time in Plumas and Tehama counties.

  Originally from northeastern Oregon’s Imnaha pack, OR-7 was fitted with a radio collar in February 2011 when he was just a pup. The nomadic gray wolf dispersed from his pack in the fall of that year to begin an epic walkabout.

Forest Service plans to conduct controlled burn

April 4, 2013If weather and fuel conditions are just right, Forest Service firefighters will use fire to improve the brush, grasses and other vegetation used for food by deer and other wildlife in the Mt. Hough State Game Refuge on the Plumas National Forest.

  “Fire gets rid of the dense, tough older vegetation and causes plants to sprout, providing access and tender, more nutritious food for the animals in the area,” said Mt. Hough District Ranger Mike Donald. In addition, the area will be more “fire-safe” should a wildfire start below or within the treated area.
